21 vegetarian friendly restaurants in Manchester

1 year ago

There’s vegetarian food, then there is very good food that just happens to be vegetarian. Yes, the majority of menus give veggie or vegan options, but let’s face it, most tend to err on the dull side. Mushroom burgers and goats cheese tarts just don’t cut it anymore. There is a whole world out there full of wonderful vegetarian cuisine, and Greater Manchester has such technicolour variety.

So from the classic rice and three from This & That to the locally sourced plant-based tasting menus at The Allotment, take a dive into the veggie scene, you never know what you’ll find.

    Restaurant - Chinese

    At Ruyi’s, you can expect traditional Chinese and Oriental cuisine and fusion food – the only difference is this traditional Chinese is all vegetarian, and most of the dishes are vegan to boot.

  • The famous black dahl at Dishoom Manchester
    Manchester City Centre

    Dishoom

    Restaurant - Indian subcontinent

    Dishoom is a legend in its own lunchtime and that’s exactly how it likes things. It’s not enough to serve up top-notch Indian dishes in grand surroundings; there’s a story behind the menu too. But when the food is this good it doesn’t need to hide behind tall tales.

    And the food is this good.

    The menu is bursting with small plates arriving at the table as and when, plus biriyani, curry and grilled gubbins as well as all sorts of sides and sundries. If you’re part of a big group (or obscenely greedy) it’s possible and even preferable to order something from each section.
